I’ve been enjoying looking at all the gorgeous blanket FOs. The colors, the movement, the coziness – they’re all so tempting. And who cares if I’ve only ever finished one blanket? How many times do I have to tell you – logic be damned.
Here’s a sampling of some of my faves.
Domino Star Stashbuster – Great for leftovers. The pattern is written for fingering weight, but it could easily be adjusted to sport or even DK.
Hue Shift Afghan – This one came on my radar a few weeks ago. I even briefly considered making it out of the green sock weight yarns I bought for a blanket a few years ago. I talked myself down from that brainstorm, but I keep looking at that pic. And oh yeah, I did buy the pattern.
POP blanket – Noro and cream – great combo. This one’s in aran weight, but like most blankets a variety of weights would work. And who doesn’t love a good polka dot.
Color Block Blanket – The variety of textures will keep it interesting. And the tactile feel will keep you obsessed after it’s done.
Four Corners Baby Blanket – Just four big squares to make an even bigger blanket. Some of the FOs are in 2 or even 1 color and they all look fantastic.
Baby Shane Blanket – Another creative use of simple patterns. Four big squares done on an angle.
Barn Raising Quilt – Simple squares made from sock yarn. Knit a couple each time you finish a pair of socks and insta-blankie (not really but it’s a great thought, right?).
Moderne Baby Blanket – Big chunks of solid garter stitch – this screams squishy, cuddly and cozy.
Double Vision – The clever part of this blanket is the combining of 2 yarns to create an entrancing gradation. The FOs have been done in a variety of shades – from soft pastels to drab olives to rainbow. They’re all gorgeous.
There you go – 9 of my favorites. What about you? What are your favorite blanket obsessions?
